here including pew which is always kind enough to share with us what catholics are thinking of doing in terms of the election. i picked out four different topics that i think are interesting or important from our analysis throughout the election. these four -- the first looking at catholic vote as a bellwether vote. it is true as mark noted that the winner of the catholic vote is the winner of the popular vote and 25% of voters are expected to be catholic in november. the draw of catholic candidates among catholic voters, we have two catholic vice presidential candidates which is truly a unique circumstance. we get a lot of questions that care about does it matter? does one draw catholics more than the other? the third thing would be how important turnout is going to be here. we heard about that and hope to show you that turn among different subgroups that will likely be important in determining how the catholic vote goes. and family looking what the role the church has been the election season and how it potentially affected catholic vote. previously how catholics have voted weeing
